Artplay found a time capsule sealed by the youth of the Manometer factory in 1972 with a message to 2022

Our long-suffering year 2022 was chosen for a message to the future not by chance: this is the year of the centenary of the formation of the USSR, and in 1972, respectively, the 50th anniversary was celebrated.

What exactly the Komsomol members and the youth of the Manometr plant wrote to us is not yet known: the capsule will be opened on December 27 at 12.00 in the hall of building 12, where the factory entrance used to be, and everyone is invited to join.

The press service of the Artplay design center gives an example of a time capsule from 1967, opened on November 4, 2017 in Novosibirsk. It was written there: “We believe that you have excellently equipped our beautiful blue planet Earth, mastered the Moon and landed on Mars <…> That you are negotiating scientific and cultural cooperation with representatives of other, foreign civilizations.”

After opening, the capsule will be placed under a glass dome in building 12 and will lay their message to 2072 next to it. A letter to the residents of Moscow in 2072 will be written by artificial intelligence. In addition to the letter, there will be an audio guide recorded by Andrey Lednev, a local historian and resident of the Basmanny district.

“The purpose of creating time capsules is to transfer to descendants of knowledge about people’s lives in the era when the capsule was laid. Therefore, the Artplay Design Center calls on all active citizens to think about those artifacts that should be re-placed in the capsule in 2022. Suggestions can be sent by email. pr@artplay.ru. The authors of the most original ideas will receive prizes from Artplay,” the press service promises.
